Wonderful Annascaul River walk with fairies

 

Annascaul River walk and the forest Fairy Village 

Annascaul River Walk with Forest Fairies

Lough Annascaul lies 4.5km north of the village of Annascaul village on the Dingle Peninsula. At thge westerns end of the village  you can access the Annascaul River walk through the South Pole garden. There is a bridge that you can access to start you down the River walk route. Follow the river walk for 3 km. This gorgeous walk follows along the river bank and is suitable for all. As a  family stroll it is ideal as it  closed and fenced off. Additionally it is  quite flat all the way to the forest stile.

Travelling 1.5 km in,  you will come to a stile. Cross  this and you will come to a lovely little forest. It even has its own fairies where you will see theirt houses in the tress.  When you  finish exploring the fairy dwellings continue on to the rood which runs along the outskirts of the forest.  At the road  you have 2 choices. If you take the turn to the left and it will bring you up to Annascaul Lake. If you take the turn to the right you  can loop back to Annascaul village where is a shorter walk.  

  Fairies in Annascaul

If you  want  more information about fairies  I  suggest you  look at this page . Did you know that fairies are encouraging towards others. They are also generous. You can see this when they are always leaving  little notes and treats for peoplwe they trust ald like. Another thuing you need to realise is that all fairies are quite different with different personalities. Some fairies talk alot and some say lite and are rather quiet but generally most fairies love to play in gardens

Parking at the Lake 

Access to Lough Annascaul is by a country lane. There is parking for approximately 10 cars at the banks of the lake. The satellite map below  will give an idea of the route in relation to the village. The video here was  taken William Glasgow Howe who is an avidephotographer wioth Annascaul Walk .   Check out Annascaul Walks for their up to date walking schedule
